Ciara Twerking Video Overshadowed by Fuel Costs: “The Gas Prices”

Ciara’s attempt to promote her new single “JUMP” with a hot gas station TikTok-Twerk sparks a conversation about gas prices.

The “Goodies” hitmaker is joined in the video by three dancers, all in shorts, dancing around a silver Ford Bronco SUV. Ciara’s husband, quarterback Russell Wilson, was recently traded to the Denver Broncos.

A clip from the song, which is the lead offering of their forthcoming album, plays in the background.

The video has 300,000 likes and more than 2.5 million views.

But most of the top comments revolve around visible gas prices, which are higher than the hem of the “1, 2 Step” singer.

In the background of the video is a Shell sign with gasoline prices at $6.69, $6.89 and $6.99 per gallon. Neon signs for Wendy’s and Wetzel’s Pretzels complete the scene.

“Gas prices are all I’ve seen,” commenter prestonb1993 wrote, earning 17,000 likes. “THE GAS PRICES,” wrote llaaciii___.

A user, pheonix_senju, asked how to avoid the prizes. “Where are you so I don’t go?” they commented.

“You should have picked a different location because all I see is gas close to $7,” wrote ryans_truth_. “I had to scroll because I don’t claim that negativity.”

And Reemontheloose expressed concern for Ciara’s own wallet, asking: “Why is the car running?????

Gas prices have skyrocketed due to a perfect inflationary storm, ongoing supply chain issues related to COVID-19 and the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Americans were worried in mid-May when fuel prices rose to $4.49 a gallon and hoped things would settle down by June.

Memorial Day weekend, however, has come and gone without a pause from soaring fuel fees. President Joe Biden is facing a backlash for attributing prices to an “incredible transition” from dependence on fossil fuels to cleaner forms of energy.

“It’s bad,” he said. “The price of petrol at the pump is something I said, you’ve heard me say before, would have been a big discussion around my kitchen table when I was a kid, growing up. It affects many families.”

Just days ago, European Union leaders officially banned 90 percent of crude oil imports from Russia, in a series of restrictions that will remain in place for the rest of this year

Since the announcement, markets have already seen a significant increase in oil prices, which has a direct impact on prices at the pump as higher purchasing and refining costs are inevitably passed on to the end user.

According to last week’s AAA, the current average gas price per gallon at US pumps is $4,622 (regular) and $4,997 (intermediate). Data on the AAA’s website, taken from the Energy Information Administration, showed that total domestic gasoline inventories fell by 500,000 barrels to 219.7 million barrels in the previous seven days.
